house. why don't you start with your take on obama's inaugural address last week and what you described in your "usa today" column as a difference between civil rights and civil liberties under this administration? guest: the inauguration speech was picking up a very common and almost mantra in the obama administration of achieving equality, which is a noble and important goal. i think the most significant thing about the inauguration speech, which are particularly thought was wonderful, was his reference to gay-rights and to the gay movement. it established his commitment to equality. i want to note that he has not been particularly aggressive in supporting gay rights in his first administration. his administration in court argued the same arguments as the bush administration. he still refuses to make clear his position on key legal aspects of gay-rights. and so, the first term obama was not nearly as passionate as that speech would suggest. but what was missing once again was a discussion of civil liberties. i think it does reflect this great schism in the democratic and liberal commu

-- the incident you're recalling is a week before obama was sworn in, he was -- i was invited to a dinner with a few conservative columnists to meet with the president-elect. and i remember when the word leaked out, liberal columnists were extremely upset so they quickly scheduled a breakfast the next morning. we got steak and they got corn flakes. that was the only victory our side won. and obama was extremely affable , extremely genial. and what impressed me, and thus is the reason why i'm so disappointed with him today, is he showed a very keen capacity to understand and to respect a contrary argument. we asked him a ton of questions, and he would restate your side without creating a straw man, giving the sort of best and most open and generous interpretation of your argument, stating his and then speaking about trying to find a resolution. so he has that capacity, which is why i'm so infuriated whenever he makes these speeches and he does this all the time, when he always attributes to his opponents bad faith, what he calls, you know, the party over national interests, personal intere
